I can't find a picture of anyone using one at all appropriately (they've left themselves far too exposed) but it's essentially a giant silk bag that leaves a hole only for your face. My friends call it "the human condom" for obvious reasons. The only drawback is that I forget I have it on in the middle of the night and face plant on my way to the loo.

If anyone's about a week on Saturday (aka the 23rd), I think we're going for a boozy-do about the town as it'll be our Last Saturday Living In Nottingham. Venues undecided. And I don't mean the shitty singles bar/club in Leicester.

Ooh. That sounds nice! Day after pay day, too.

Daytime or night time? Or both?

Night time, I'll have been over in Leicester the night before and will probably be dead until late afternoon. 8ish start I think.

Pablo, i have performed an act of detective work i doubt any so called police officer in the country is capable of (now bergerac has retired). i have discovered why the police hang around subways like flies hang around shit. HALF PRICE for all coppers and community support officers innit. you could combine your two hobbies of subway sandwich ingesting and police officer impersonating and make a killing.

That's first rate information, and goodness knows I could do with a career change.

You could be a careers officer.

How did you find this out? Were you impersonating a policeman?

er. there's a big sign in the window of the new subway opposite the train station that says "50% off for all police and PCSOs". which i think is short for picassos.

Hello.

I'm taking next week off work. I have nothing to do and very little money. And there's noisey work men who'll be banging on the roof. Way to make the most of my holiday allowance.

Is it next week David Thomas Broughton is playing? Or the week after?

Oh, I don't know what to wear tonight.

i'm going to be in the dragon pub on angel row from five. i need to know whether their seven bean burger contains seven beans or seven types of beans. it is important.

having to meet a 30 year old cousin you never knew you had sounds like a pre-emptive excuse for not having a bean burger to me. shame on you.

He's called Julian.

See? I even had a name ready for you. I'm fucking good.

I'm bricking myself about it.

Good luck on the bean front. So to speak.

Hehehe, I went to the travel agents today and reserved everything. A small amendment has been made to the holiday, in that my mum is coming with me! She likes a holiday, she does. It should be a good laugh. Only 8 weeks!
